Ohio State senior reserve defensive lineman Kosta Karageorge has been missing since early Wednesday and Columbus Police are continuing to search for him.
Karageorge, a walk-on and former Ohio State wrestler, did not show up for practice Wednesday and apparently was absent again Thursday.
His mother, Susan, filed a missing person’s report about 5 a.m. Wednesday. She posted on Facebook that Karageorge has been missing since 2 a.m. Wednesday. Family and friends have been looking for him near campus.
The family also posted the following on Twitter: “Kosta was last seen around 2 am November 26. His family is asking for prayers & any info regarding his whereabouts. Please call: 614-747-1729.”
Karageorge’s roommates, who are Ohio State wrestlers, said he left their apartment to go for a walk about 2 a.m. Karageorge’s sister, Sophia, told Cleveland.com that her brother was upset. His last known whereabouts, according to his cell phone, was about 10 miles from the apartment.
